Patriotism & Patios

July 20th, 2014

I know I know, this post is a little late considering 4th of July has already passed.

Yet, I just feel like all of summer is one patriotic festivity! Between fireworks, country concerts, picnics & American Holidays; I think it’s perfectly fine to red, white, & blue the summer away. 


So what’s the 1st step in Americanizing your home?

Well for me it’s deff the PATIO! Nothing is more American than outside summer night festivites & everyone needs a place to sit, so ya might as well make it patriotic! 



Also July is a bomb time for sales ( cough, Nordstrom Sale, cough) so it’s the perfect time to splurge on decor! My mother, sister & I headed out to Pottery Barn & added some American touches to the back of our house! 

We naturally have red couches so by adding some decorative pillows, our patio went from summer to Star-Spangled Banner

 Here are the links for these festive lil things: American Flag Pillow // Navy Stripped Pillow // Square American Flag Pillow // the all blue starred pillow PB no longer carries but this is a great sub: Star Pillow


Ya Pottery Barn always pulls through when it comes to summer decor! 

Happy Belated 4th of July to everyone & I hope your summer is filled with patriotic pillows!
